EPSILON5 MKIV (AVR-JTAG) - Portable ISP Programmer - Atmel AVR-JTAG algorithms only
The Epsilon5 MKIV Portable USB ISP Programmer is a high-speed development / field / production programmer supporting most in-system
programmable (ISP) microcontrollers from Atmel, Philips and Zensys. The programmer can be operated under PC control during
development and for project configuration / uploading using the EQTools Toolsuite. For field / production applications the unit is designed to
operate in ‘Standalone Mode’. A ‘Programming Project’ can be recalled from the on-board non-volatile FLASH memory and programmed into
a Target System by pressing a single key.
The Epsilon5 MK IV(AVR-JTAG) supports high-speed In System Programming (ISP) of Atmel AVR microcontrollers via the JTAG interface.
Ideal programmer for development, field service and production applications

Project Builder - to create/edit Programming Projects
Project Manager - to create and maintain Project Collections
Project Upload / Download Utility - to upload projects to the programmer for use in Standalone Mode
Standalone Programming Mode
In ‘Standalone Mode’, the EPSILON5 is controlled via the push buttons on the front panel of the programmer - no PC connection is
required.The programmer can store one 'Standalone Programming Project' which can then be executed multiple times by simply pressing
the 'Autoprogram' button.

Programmer is completely portable as no PC connection is required
Programmer supports storage of 1 x 'Standalone Programming Project' in the non-volatile On-board 512kbyte FLASH Memory
Store .
Single key auto-program mode - supports repetitive programming of the same project
Simple BUSY / PASS / FAIL indication via 'Programmer Status LEDs'
Operator can not inadvertently change the programming data or settings
To configure the programmer for 'Standalone Mode'...


A Project Collection containing a single 'Standalone Programming Project' must be uploaded on a one-off basis to the
programmer using the EQTools PC software
This is a single file which can be easily distributed to remote sites. It contains all projects, Hex File data, Fuse information etc.

Atmel 10-way SPI Header (for Atmel AVR and AT89S microcontrollers)
Equinox 10-way Header (for Atmel AVR and AT89S microcontrollers) and I2C Serial EEPROMs
Atmel 6-way SPI Header (for Atmel AVR and AT89S microcontrollers)
Atmel 10-way JTAG ISP Header (for JTAG ISP of Atmel ATmega AVR microcontrollers)
Equinox 10-way UART Header (for Atmel AT89C51Rx2 and Philips P89C51RX2 and P89C66x microcontrollers)
A special 'ARM JTAG ISP Cable' is available to support programming of all ARM microcontrollers via the JTAG interface.
This allows the programmer to interface directly to most target systems without requiring an external cable convertor.
Please refer to the ISP Header Overview page for full details of all available ISP Headers and ISP Cables.

Comparison of new EPSILON5-MKIV and the MKII / MKIII versions
The new EPSILON5 MKIV programmer has the following improvements compared to the earlier MKII and MKIII versions:







Features an on-board high-speed USB port instead of an RS232 port.
Uploading of large project collections and PC controlled programming is now significantly faster
The MKIV Programmer now runs at x2 the speed of the older programmer versions
Most algorithms will now run faster due to faster processor and more on-board RAM
The internal electronics now runs at +5V instead of +3.0V giving a better signal drive
The external DC Jack power input will now accept any voltage between +6.2V and 12.0V.
The programmer can be powered from the PC USB port during configuration / project uploading
